Frenetic and fantastically varied, India is difficult to define. With a population of over 1.3 billion, a land mass of over 11.5 million square miles and an impressive 22 official languages, anything goes in this wonderfully chaotic country. From the sun-splashed and palm-fringed beaches of the tropical south to the cloud-covered Himalayas in the north, India boasts plenty of tantalizing topography. And the beauty of travelling alone means you have the time to truly immerse yourself in it all. Dedicate a couple of days to Vishnu and Shiva on a temple tour up the country’s southwest coast or take
an Eat Pray Love style pilgrimage along the Ganges to Varanasi – the so-called ‘City of Light’. If your tastebuds are tingling, take a culinary tour of India’s restless cities, where rickshaws and motorbikes weave through stalls of creamy kulfi ice cream, cardamon curries and Darjeeling tea. India solo travel really never tasted so good.

If you’re the type of solo traveller that just can’t sit still, India is your perfect match. From the bustling back streets of Bangalore to the barefoot paradise of Goa, where crystal waves peel back to reveal salt-white sands and mellow sea turtles, India is the queen of juxtaposition. While its unpredictability can at times be confounding, and its poverty startling, the country continues to spawn legions of die-hard fans. The reasons for this are endless, whether it be because it has the oldest cuisine in the world, or because it’s home to the largest population of tigers, or maybe it’s thanks to its long traditions and colourful history, which smash together under kaleidoscopic skies at annual Holi festivals. Relish in India’s festival fever at Rajasthan’s International Folk Festival (RIFF), where musicians and speakers perform late into the night overlooking the Mehrangarh Fort, or create your own beat at a Kathak dance class – complete with bells, drums and harmoniums, of course.
India solo travel really only requires one thing – a sense of adventure. Put your lungs to work on a hike up Hatu Peak, marvel at the magnitude of the Taj Mahal and watch in awe as troops of rhesus monkeys dance over prowling tigers in Dudhwa National Park. Travelling solo doesn’t always have to mean travelling alone either, particularly when you have our local Concierge on hand to help you out every step of the way. Learn how to cook traditional laal maas in Jaipur, take guided tours through Munar’s myriad coffee, tea and spice plantations and learn the secrets of India’s sacred temples and rituals on spiritual retreats in the Himalayas. Speaking of tranquility, if peace and quiet is what you’re really after, Fort Cochin is our prescription. Watch dhows glide across the horizon and bathe in the salty sea air and sun-kissed surroundings of your India solo travel adventure.
